Linux Tutorial - Irssi

This Documents Assumes the following

You have followed the procedure to Access Linux on the device and have enabled the Optware repositories and software http://www.webos-internals.org/wiki/Portal:Accessing_Linux

You have installed the Terminal application http://www.webos-internals.org/wiki/Application:Terminal


Once these procedures are done you should have access to:

The Optware software repositories through ipkg-opt

The Terminal Application through the WebOS (should load, be the root user, and function)


Installation

Within the Terminal application use the following command:

ipkg-opt install screen irssi

This command will automatically download GNU Screen (link needed) and irssi (link needed) as well as any necessary dependencies.


Configuration/Tweaks

Known Issues

Even with Screen running you can lose connection if the wifi radio turns off when the screen does, see <link for fixing that>
